The Italian Matteo Berrettini, the russian Karen khachanov and the hungarian Marton fucsovics They sealed their presence in the Wimbledon quarterfinals on Monday.
Berrettini was the earliest of all and signed his first quarters at Wimbledon with an outstanding performance against Belarusian Ilya Ivashka (6-4, 6-3 and 6-1).
This year’s Queen’s winner improved on the round of 16 he did at Wimbledon in 2019, when stopped by Roger Federer, thanks to a round match where he made 37 winners and only conceded one break opportunity with his powerful serve.
The Italian gunner, who has won his last nine matches on the circuit and has not lost since Roland Garros, has only given up two sets in this time frame, one in the Queen’s final and another in his All England Club debut. Now he will wait for the winner of the duel between Felix Auger-Aliassime and Alexander Zverev.
Karen Khachanov had many more problems, who lived a real show, for the worse, against the American Sebastian Korda (3-6, 6-4, 6-3, 5-7 and 10-8). Korda and Khachanov signed a fifth set to forget, with thirteen service breaks in total, in which the Russian ended up taking the triumph with suspense.
The one from Moscow will meet in the quarterfinals against Canadian Denis Shapovalov, Roberto Bautista’s executioner.
In addition, Marton Fucsovics removed one of his thorns of the year, and in the fifth match he managed to tip Russian Andrey Rublev, his black beast, 6-3, 4-6, 4-6, 6-0 and 6-3. They will be the first quarter-finals for Fucsovics and they will face the Serbian Novak Djokovic, who defeated Christian Garín, and against whom he has lost both games he has played.
